अयं सुहृदयं शत्रुरिति द्वन्द्वमहाद्विपः ।
विनिकृन्तति मर्माणि यथा नीलोत्पलानि मे ॥ ३६ ॥

ayaṃ suhṛdayaṃ śatruriti dvandvamahādvipaḥ |
vinikṛntati marmāṇi yathā nīlotpalāni me || 36 ||

The thoughts that this one is my friend, and the other one is my foe, are our greatest enemies in this world; and these tear my heart strings like the rough wind, that tears the tender lotus leaves and fibres.
